In the Pocket
A real mishmash of topics is covered in this set of four books. The choice of background color is interesting. It would seem that if you choose a stock photo of a girl in denim, sticking a thumb in a pocket (or pulling the pocket inside out), the background color has to be blue. Even a similar shade of blue…
The cropping is similar as well. Segmenting people like this, cropping between the waist and knees, and vertically is so popular that it makes me wonder what it is about it that people find appealing (if they do). The Complete Guide to Personal Finance: For Teenagers by Holly Jill Schubert (Atlantic Pub 2008), Gotcha! by Shelley Hrdlitschka (Orca 2008), and Klepto by Jenny Pollack (Speak 2008, 2006) are books for teens. But So Sexy So Soon by Diane E. Levin and Jean Kilbourne (Ballantine Books 2008), using the same stock photo as Klepto, is a parenting title.
Gotcha!: A bead game spins out of control.
Klepto: In 1981, fourteen-year-old Julie, a drama major at the High School of Performing Arts in New York City, becomes best friends with an attractive new girl who introduces Julie to the exciting but dangerous world of shoplifting.
